    Sad square

    Central square dominated by forsaken damaged cathedral waiting to be repaired after recent earthquakes. Square is on the way of Christchurch trams, there is one of stops.

Additional Information


Located in the heart of Christchurch, Cathedral Square was once the main venue for citizen gatherings and is now the city's transportation hub. The high-profile building on the square is Christchurch Cathedral, a major landmark in Christchurch. The square is still a place for locals to relax. Every weekend, you can see a variety of street concerts and impromptu street performances. There will also be a lively market, selling T-shirts, sunglasses, paintings and handicrafts along the street, and even the wooden craft clock of the church shape, which makes sense.
